This was our 2nd stop on the tour. the biggest portions of any of the spots on the tour. the patatas braves were so tasty. you just can't go wrong with them. the table configuration probably wasn't the best for the type of group but other than that it was a great spot

I went there on many ocassions and I was happy with food every single time. They have great tapas - you can order few of them and share with friends. Be carefull - big portions means a really huge plate. I like industrial decor - it feels like being on old train station. It is a really nice place -... More

It is a great place for antipasti and tapas in the early evening, or full dinner. Ideal with friends or your date, the atmopshere suits any type of night out. A bit expensive but worth the quality of the food. The best dishes I ve tried are the patatas bravas, the goat cheese salad and their desserts...

We came for a four night stay and the hotel is lovely. Located in the docklands section it is a little off from town center, but the location is walking distance from most sites with ease. The staff was lovely, but they did pull a bait and switch at check in, offering us a room that supposedly was larger and... More

Nice place to go for some tapas or have a few pints. The tapas are very good and the portions more than enough! The place is vibrant and the staff helpful. We had the big portion of nachos, the meatballs, goat cheese salad and croquettes! We will go back!

Saturday evening. A Capital City. A Group of 8 hungry revellers. And its already late in the afternoon. Should we forget about dining somewhere decent and just resign ourselves to splitting up or fast food? Not a chance! Enter, The Market Bar. Met by a lovely hostess who took our name (as only 3 of the 8 were present at... More

I'm an occassional punter here, atmosphere always buzzy and social. Casual eats available in small and large portions which is always useful and good value. Had one bad dish here a while back but it has since been removed from menu.

The wide open seting and interesting decor make a good first impression. The food availblae is a Tapas menu and perfect for a large group. The portion size was ample and the food excellent. There is a great beer selection. The only down side is having gone for the no music option the effect although novel at first becomes a... More

I've been a couple of times here and I've never been disappointed. Great tapas, nice atmosphere! The service is a bit slow as the place is huge, but nothing that disappoints.
